Another Day, Another A

Midterms are upon us. Or upon me anyway. Professors at Purdue can have them whenever they like so midterm “week” lasts from three or four weeks into the semester until finals start. It’s one of the less annoying things about this place. Oh well, at least the snow has melted.

My first Linear Algebra midterm [...]

Things I Learned at Mardi Gras

 Louisiana has no open container law.  People in the South can not drive.  Cajun food rocks.  Alcohol tastes better if you buy it yourself.

 

Hump Day

As I was leaving class today I realized that everyone I’ve talked to in the past week or so is either a PhD or has a high school diploma; there’s no middle ground.

Wednesdays are my easiest day though. I finished with classes at 1:20, came home and spent a nice leisurely afternoon at the [...]

DNS

Well, the new domain should be up and running for the most part. No luck in getting spiffy.com, but oh well.

I’ve decided to start spelling “exothermal” without the “e”. It makes nuclear chemistry seem much more xtreme.

Valentine’s Day came and went without much fanfare. I went out with Cap and Beth, who is [...]

Saturday

Kind of a lazy day. I drove around with Yermack for a while begging for Grand Prix money. The strip club in town that sponsored us two years ago opens at 10:00 AM, seven days a week.

I need to do some homework before I go out. Maybe I’ll just stay in tonight.

A thought: [...]

Email

Probably the most impressive thing I’ve ever written:

 

Brothers,

As many of you may have noticed, at some point this afternoon several doors

within the house went missing. Fortunately, they were discovered unharmed in

Thalmann’s… in the room at the end of the hall. Truly this is a prank for

the ages, and the [...]

Insomnia

When you have insomnia, you’re never really awake and you’re never really asleep.

That’s part of the reason I wanted to drink tonight, aside from the fact that it’s Wednesday and I’ve already had a rough week. If I’m sober it takes me *hours* to fall asleep, but after a couple of drinks I’ll be [...]

Take Your Marks

I just got back from an intramural swim meet. It was like going back in time, except I came home and started doing homework, so I can tell I’m at college. I lost both contacts, but I went a 27.27 in the 50 Fly and got to hang out with sorority girls in swimsuits for [...]

Reality Bites

This is your life and it’s ending one minute at a time.

In talking to some people over the past few days I’ve pinned down what it is that bothers me about college. Everyone has the outlook that they’re getting jobs to finance whatever it is they actually want to do with their lives. No [...]
